The last time Jennifer Garner got suited up to kick some ass on the big screen, it was in the disastrous 2005 film Elektra. Since then, she's mostly made a career out of playing moms and love interests and mostly dull and uninteresting characters, but she's getting back to her Alias ass-kicking roots with the starring role in Taken director Pierre Morel's next film, Peppermint.

It's kind of like Death Wish but instead of starring weathered koala Charles Bronson or grumpy penis head Bruce Willis, this time it's sexy Jennifer Garner. She's out for revenge against the gang members that gunned down her husband and baby girl, as well as the crooked justice system that let them get off scot free.

It's the perfect sort of film for our times, as it will fail spectacularly with both segments of the population. The segment that wants to see a woman be a badass in a movie will have to swallow the pretty grey morality of this particular character, while those inclined to root for a vigilante don't want to see anyone without a penis playing one.

In other words, I don't expect this one to clean up at the box office despite a pretty intriguing premise. Coupled with a September 7 release date, I expect this one will fade from theaters faster than from your memory.
